Do You Suffer From Chronic Pain?
Approximately 100 million Americans currently suffer from chronic pain, which is defined as “pain lasting longer than six months.” Chronic pain can be a daily annoyance, or it can be incapacitating. At Life Health Medical Center, we focus on treatment of the entire body. We do not just treat the symptom, we search for answers and find the root cause of your pain so we can help you life a longer, healthier life.
Understanding Chronic Pain
With chronic pain, signals of pain will remain active in your body’s nervous system for weeks, months, or years. Constantly living with pain can take a mental and physical toll on your body. Headaches, joint pain, backaches, tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pain from injury are the most common issues causing chronic pain. Chronic pain can impact all areas of your body, causing you to have additional problems including stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and anger. Failure to use the right treatment can place a patient in an ongoing cycle of these emotions as the body’s production of natural painkillers are ineffective against chronic pain.
Chronic Pain Treatment
When you meet with our physicians at Life Health Medical Center, you will undergo a complete physical evaluation, discuss your health history, and focus on learning about your chronic pain symptoms and the condition that can cause it. Pain treatments will vary based on the amount of time you have been dealing with chronic pain, how bad it is, where you hurt, and what is causing your pain.
Treatments for chronic pain have changed over the years, but modern treatments have been effective for millions of people. We can use one or a combination of the following treatments:
- Spinal Adjustments
- Massage and stretching
Each treatment is carefully considered by our physicians before we recommend them. Your health is our top priority and we work hard to ensure you are given the best treatments for your chronic pain problems.
